Description
These special types of titanites are, arguably, more desired than the regular brown ones. They are a creamy white colour and lustrous. Some people say that they are titanite altered to anatase which would make them pseudomorphs. Others say that they are just titanite damaged by teeny frost fractures. This specimen is a very nice, twinned crystal as you can see by the prominent re-entrant angle. A nice one!
